Join us in congratulating Mariya Lupandina for her promotion to Design Associate at MYKD! Mariya’s experience includes planning and concept development for a number of urban greenspaces and educational institutions. With a interest in wellness and inclusive design, Mariya focuses on designing visionary spaces for play and community that celebrate unity, sustainability and healthfulness. She successfully integrates innovative design with the need for human comfort and safety.

Growing up near Algonquin Park in Canada, Mariya gained an appreciation of nature and the benefits it brings to our collective health. Mariya received her design education from Northeastern University, where she had the opportunity to take several ecologically-focused classes as an architecture major. This experience bred an interest in the health of our planet and how landscape design can be leveraged to protect them.
